Remember the fujin voice line in MK9+him showing up in Kratos ending? Or his brief presence in the storymode to MKX?
His fans were pretty bummed he wasn't in KP2 because he was teased fairly often but he came back in MK11.
I think it shows NRS is more willing to add him in a future MK than say....Kobra or Darrius.
Was it too much to ask for everything for this game before its death to be unlockable in towers/krypt or buyable? Like, skins, brutalities, taunts, concept art - there is so much stuff I don't have and can't obtain in any way. So the only thing what's left is to wait another x months like an idiot for ridiculous premium shop or krypt event? WTF
